ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

NV:nv

13. ABSENCE OF SUPERVISOR HYLAND (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley noted that Supervisor Hyland was representing the County along with the Police Chief and the Fire Chief at a National Association of Counties presentation in Washington, DC this morning.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, Supervisor Hyland reported on his appearance there. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#55.)

14. FOSTER CARE MONTH (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley announced that in conjunction with the national observances, the Fairfax County Foster Care Association has requested that the County observe May as Foster Care Month.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman McConnell and moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the foster care community to appear before the Board at the May 6, 2002, meeting to receive a Proclamation declaring May as "Foster Care Month" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Gross and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Hyland not yet having arrived.

15. NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH WEEK (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley announced that "Healthy People, Healthy Communities" is the theme of National Public Health Week to be celebrated April 1-7, 2002. To coincide with the national observance and to recognize the regional efforts made to respond to bioterrorism, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Health Department, the Health Care Advisory Board, Inova Health Systems, and the Health Departments in Arlington, Alexandria, and Winchester to appear before the Board at the March 18, 2002, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring April 1-7, 2002, as "Public Health Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Gross being out of the room, Supervisor Hyland not yet having arrived.

16. WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley announced that World Tuberculosis Day is designated as March 24, 2002. To encourage all Fairfax County residents to recognize the importance of TB screenings, she moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Health Department and a physician working closely with TB patients to appear before the Board at the March 18, 2002, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring March 24, 2002, as "TB Awareness Day" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland not yet having arrived.

17. AREA PLANS REVIEW (APR) PROCESS (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley said that the ongoing APR process has raised the need for Policy Plan guidance regarding the process and the types of property that are generally appropriate for public parks, as well as a clarification and affirmation of the County Policy supporting privately initiated open space transactions, such as the donation of conservation easements to non-profit organizations.

Chairman Hanley reminded the Board that there were a number of property-specific "park option" nominations submitted in the ongoing APR process. She asserted that there should be clear and concise Countywide guidance in the Policy Plan about the type of properties that might be appropriate for public park use. Furthermore, it should be clear that a property-specific designation in an Area Plan is not required for consideration of a property for public park acquisition.

Chairman Hanley noted that it is important to recognize that the County enthusiastically supports the efforts of the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, the Park Authority, and other groups that enable private land owners the opportunity to donate development rights and receive favorable Internal Revenue Service (IRS) treatment as thank yous for their generosity. One of the criteria the IRS uses to evaluate the validity of a conservation easement dedication is the support from state and local policies. To make sure there is no misunderstanding at the IRS about County endorsement of these transactions, the Policy Plan should incorporate a concise statement of support for privately initiated conservation transactions.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to draft appropriate Plan language regarding County policies supporting parks and open space and return to the Board for advertisement. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland not yet having arrived.

18. IMPORTANCE OF VIRGINIA SCHOOL CENSUS FORMS (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley reminded Board Members that they had received a letter from the Superintendent of Schools requesting assistance in publicizing the importance of the Virginia School Census forms. The results of the census affect school funding. Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publicize the importance of the forms on the County’s website. Without objection, it was so ordered.

19. LEGAL RULING REGARDING PAINT (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley called the Board’s attention to a press release she had received with the headline "Milestone Ruling in Rhode Island’s Lawsuit Against Paint Companies." She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney to examine this case and report with information regarding lead paint class action suits in the legal community. Without objection, it was so ordered.

The Board briefly discussed the County’s population in comparison with Rhode Island and other states.

Acting-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Gross reminded the Board, interested citizens, and employees that they now have an opportunity to show pride in Fairfax County by reserving a new license plate commemorating the County's history. The Fairfax County license plate features the County coat-of-arms and the motto "Home of the Bill of Rights." Proceeds from the purchase of a Fairfax County license plate will help to support the County's historic preservation activities and programs.

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires that the County collect 350 pre-paid applications before plate production can begin. To date, 250 more applicants are needed to reach the goal of 350 by June 2002.

The annual fee for the Fairfax County plate is $25 and a personalized Fairfax County plate is $35. After a total of 1000 plates are sold, the DMV will forward $15 from the sale of each plate to Fairfax County.

She said that the article reported that since 1952 there has always been at least one woman elected to the Board with a high of five serving today. She pointed out that at one time there were six women on the Board when the total number of members on the Board was nine.

Supervisor Gross asked to amend the request that the error be corrected, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, without objection, as amended, the request was so ordered.

26. RESTON CELEBRATES LONGEVITY WITH AN "OVER 90" CELEBRATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on Monday, February 18, 2002, yesterday's teenagers of Reston celebrated their longevity at Lake Anne's Fellowship House with an "over 90" celebration. One of Reston's oldest citizens, Mr. Vartan Anooshian, celebrated his 108th birthday. Mr. Anooshian is believed to be Reston's oldest citizen. There were a total of 18 nonagenarians honored at the "Over 90" party.

A smaller application proposes a rezoning from the R-1 District to the R-5 District.

The Planning Commission public hearing on these applications is currently scheduled for April 24, 2002. The Planning Commission public hearing was deferred from March 20, 2002, to give the applicant time to resolve outstanding issues. The applicant has requested that the Board schedule its public hearing to occur on May 6, 2002.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing to be held before the Board on Rezoning Applications RZ 2001-SP-041 and RZ 2001-SP-043 to occur on May 6, 2002. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the rezoning applications in any way.

Given the fact that the application is consistent with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan and staff does not have outstanding issues, the applicant has requested that the Board authorize concurrent processing.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the site plan concurrently with the consideration of Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 00-Y-001. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way.

51. REQUEST FOR AN ANALYSIS OF PRESENT AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT AT FORT BELVOIR (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding development at Fort Belvoir. In it he noted recent reports that Fort Belvoir had just begun the process of building 2,569 new residences on the base known as the "Residential Communities Initiative." The Army Materiel Command, with its 800 - 1,000 employees will be locating to Fort Belvoir by July 2002. The Southwest Administrative Park, which will serve as a work center for 15,000 army and military-affiliated personnel, is proposed to be placed at Fort Belvoir near the entrance to the Fairfax County Parkway. In addition, the National Army Museum to be located at Fort Belvoir is expected to attract one million visitors annually.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that in light of all these developments and activities at Fort Belvoir, as well as proposed development there, that the Board direct staff to analyze present and proposed changes to Fort Belvoir and provide the Board with a report of the development conditions and proffers which would be required if a private developer were to develop and/or make such changes.
